Last night, the Miami HEAT unveiled a limited edition line of jewelry and collectibles for HEAT fans to celebrate the team's 2012 NBA championship. The team collaborated with Jostens, creator of the HEAT's 2006 and 2012 Championship rings and a leading designer and producer of custom jewelry. The collections were launched following a pre-game ceremony at AmericanAirlines Arena immediately after the team received their NBA championship rings. The fan collection is available for a limited time at www.jostens.com/MiamiHEAT.
